Evaluation of sex-specific risks of incident major adverse cardiovascular events

Takeaway

  • At 1 year, risks of incident major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) were similarly elevated in men and women with first-ever acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and no prior cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Why this matters

    Understanding sex-specific characteristics and risk factors of cardiovascular complications following stroke will aid in developing patient-centered treatment strategies.
